New Moirs Hill weather station now online

in

The club has recently purchased a new Holfuy solar-powered GSM weather station capable of providing real-time data that is accessible online. On Wednesday 12 March, myself, Rodger and Di removed the existing weather station at Moirs and installed the new station in its place (the intention is for the old station to be installed at another site that we currently don't have live weather data from, as it's still perfectly functional).

The data from this station is available online here: http://holfuy.hu/en/data.php?station=s111

Site Explorer Competition

This year's Site Explorer competition was a hard fought and close battle. The winner is Jeff Ripley (19) (no surprises there) just beating Tony Seaman (18). Notable mentions to Lisa Tobler (14) and Graham "El Presidente" Surrey (10).

The Competition leader board has been reset for the new season, so jump in and start logging flights. Rules are on the Competitions page.

Airspace files updated

in

A new set of airspace files have been published on the Airspace Downloads page. These have been updated to the latest version of the CAA Airspace Navigation Register (15th Nov 2012).

In this release new formats have been added. In addition to FA5 and KML we now have OpenAir and GPX formats, so the files can be loaded into much broader range of devices.

Also, in addition to CTA, GAA and MBZ the files now include CTRs.

Before using, please take note of the disclaimer on the Airspace Project page. If you discover any issues with these files please add a comment here so that it can be resolved.
